After many many happy years working in Taney, both Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Christie (previously known as Miss Swanton and Miss Durham!) hung up their teaching boots and skipped off to begin their retirements in June. The staff and pupils arranged a special assembly for each teacher, with memories shared, poems, songs and presents. Both teachers were delighted with their moving send-offs. A special leaving breakfast was also held in the Staff Room where they were presented with gifts from their colleagues.
Generations of pupils have been taught by these two exceptional ladies and the stories they could tell would fill several books! Parents and PTA will have an opportunity to celebrate their achievements at an evening in the Radisson Blu in Stillorgan in November (details to follow).
Pupils (both past and present), parents and staff would all like to wish Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Christie every happiness in their retirements!
